What We Do:
The Principal purpose of the Foundation is to assist St. Joseph’s Hospital to advance the welfare and good of the citizens it serves by:
- Maintaining a strong feeling of goodwill towards St. Joseph’s Hospital
- Raising funds for the purpose of St. Joseph’s Hospital through obtaining donations, grants and gifts, and such other means as the Foundation shall from time to time consider advisable; and in doing so exercise any powers set forth in the Non-Profit Corporations Act in compliance with relevant provincial and federal laws
- The development of Health Care in the Southeast Health Region
While the province provides funding for operations at the St. Joseph’s Hospital, other than on rare occasions, there is very little funding for capital purchases, physician recruitment and building maintenance. This makes these tasks very difficult. As technology changes, new equipment is mandatory to keep up with the changing world of medicine. While it is the foundation’s mandate to fund the above mentioned, the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation is funded 100% by public donations. The impact your donation has on healthcare is immeasurable, and leads us down the road to a successful future.
